Imperva, Inc., (@Imperva) the cybersecurity leader that protects critical applications, APIs, and data, anywhere at scale, and Fortanix, Inc. (@Fortanix), the Data Security company powered by Confidential Computing, announce that they have signed a partnership agreement, and have each joined the other’s strategic partner program.
This partnership brings together two of the most innovative and trusted cybersecurity companies focused on multicloud data protection. The joint offerings from Imperva and Fortanix will provide the ability to manage the entire data security workflow for customers ensuring data privacy and compliance.
Imperva now offers Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM), a highly scalable data security platform that delivers unified cryptographic and privacy services such as encryption, tokenization, dynamic data masking (DDM), secrets management, and enterprise key management. The solution works across multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) and provides an “easy button” to secure over 100 services. Fortanix DSM is simple to deploy and is offered in two editions — on-premises and a cloud-based SaaS solution — providing data security controls with both backed by FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification.
"We’re thrilled to partner with Imperva and take a best-in-class solution to the market together,” says Anand Kashyap, CEO of Fortanix. “With Imperva’s data discovery and classification capabilities and the Fortanix Data Security Manager SaaS and multicloud offering, customers have an end-to-end solution for securing workloads across the entire Data Lifecycle. This solution will help customers accelerate their data journey to the cloud while meeting the highest level of compliance.”
Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) is a robust and scalable hybrid, multicloud platform for data discovery and classification, activity monitoring, access controls, security analytics, threat detection, and compliance reporting. Imperva DSF provides protection for unstructured, semi-, and structured data — both on-premises and in the cloud.
Organizations continue to seek the most efficient and effective data security solutions to address multiple use cases such as sensitive data protection, insider threat detection, and data risk management. They must also meet compliance and privacy requirements while operating diverse ecosystems at scale and consolidating legacy tools, all without impacting the speed and agility of the application development team to achieve the highest level of ROI.
With the combined strength of Imperva DSF and Fortanix DSM, this data security partnership will benefit organizations that find their traditional controls are no longer sufficient as they move data workloads and applications to the cloud. These data security solutions address data security and privacy regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, PCI DSS, and HIPAA by employing methods to help protect and control data confidentiality, data integrity, and data access across the hybrid multicloud environment.
“With the unprecedented explosion of data over recent decades and every day, unknown sensitive data might be anywhere — potentially exposed, and unsecured. But with this new partnership between Imperva and Fortanix, companies can now discover, classify, and secure their data using encryption and tokenization wherever it resides,” says Dan Neault, SVP and GM of Data Security at Imperva. “Using the intelligence and flexibility of Imperva DSF combined with the power of the Fortanix DSM, finding sensitive data and taking the right steps to secure it is now easier than ever.”
Additionally, Imperva is now able to provide customers with Fortanix DSM via the Imperva End-User License Agreement (EULA) providing streamlined procurement via a single vendor for sales, implementation, training, support, and services.
Building a complete cybersecurity technology ecosystem dedicated to data security and compliance
The Imperva Technology Alliance Program (TAP) enables technology companies, security vendors, and cloud service providers to co-market, sell, and integrate their products and platforms with the award-winning Imperva cybersecurity portfolio to create solutions that deliver added value for customers and generate revenue growth for TAP partners.
Imperva DSF continues to deliver more value to customers through these alliances. Additionally, Fortanix also supports the Imperva Web Application Firewall (WAF) by being able to store WAF encryption keys.

DATA SECURITY, PLATFORM SECURITY, SOFTWARE SECURITY

Spin.AI, developer of the SpinOne SaaS security platform for mission-critical SaaS apps, today announced the significant expansion of its platform with new solutions to help enterprises proactively respond to the growing challenge of protecting SaaS data. This includes new capabilities around SaaS security posture management (SSPM), SaaS data leak prevention and data loss protection (SDLP), and SaaS ransomware detection and response (SRDR), as well as new integrations with JIRA and ServiceNow, and backup support for Slack.
"The rising adoption of mission-critical SaaS applications, such as collaboration tools and CRMs, has resulted in a massive amount of new SaaS data that must be safeguarded for compliance, regulatory, and business continuity purposes,” said Dmitry Dontov, CEO and founder of Spin.AI. “The most recent enhancements to the SpinOne platform protect SaaS applications, automate manual processes, and minimize business downtime for organizations that rely on SaaS apps and SaaS data. With SpinOne, teams can reduce the time it takes to identify and remediate SaaS application risks from days and months to minutes and seconds."
SpinOne is an all-in-one, SaaS security platform that protects SaaS data for mission-critical SaaS applications, including Google Workplace, Microsoft 365, Salesforce and now Slack, by delivering full visibility and fast incident response. It eliminates fundamental security and management challenges associated with protecting SaaS data by reducing the risk of data leak and loss, saving time for SecOps teams through automation, reducing downtime and recovery costs from ransomware attacks, and improving compliance. The new platform updates include:
SSPM (SaaS Security Posture Management) – Offers automated security operations to help companies quickly detect and respond to misconfigurations while also providing inventory and assessment of unsanctioned third-party apps and extensions. This reduces security and compliance risks while minimizing manual workloads. SpinOne provides full visibility and control over SaaS apps, Cloud apps, Mobile apps, and browser extensions with OAuth access to collaboration tools. Additionally, SpinOne provides access to a database of 300,000+ apps and extensions assessed by its AI-driven algorithms, reducing risk assessment time from months to seconds.
SaaS DLP (SaaS Data Leak Prevention and Loss Protection) – Mitigates unauthorized access to sensitive SaaS data with configurable access management and advanced reporting. Recovers lost data in a matter of minutes or hours (instead of the typical weeks or months) with integrated, automated SaaS backup and rapid incident response.
SaaS Ransomware Detection and Response – Quickly detects and responds to in-progress ransomware attacks, minimizing downtime from an average of one month to up to 2 hours and preventing further encryption. Provides 24/7 ransomware monitoring and automated incident alerting, and can recover SaaS data in minutes, reducing recovery costs by 90%. This patented technology gives organizations the unique capability to limit files impacted and avoid throttling and API limits on recovery.
JIRA and ServiceNow – Integrates with JIRA and ServiceNow to create alerts and incidents automatically, streamlining security operations processes for enterprise teams by eliminating the need for manual alert creation.
SpinOne for Slack – Helps protect an organization’s Slack channels and messages to meet data protection and compliance requirements, ensure business continuity, and decrease recovery costs. You can easily set up automated 3x a day backup of your Slack data on AWS, GCP, Azure or BYOS.
Enterprises use multiple point products to meet their security requirements, making it challenging to manage various dashboards, invoices, and support channels. Consequently, enterprises are consolidating on platforms that address significant issues in a single solution. This all-in-one SaaS security solution is what SpinOne provides. SpinOne can efficiently substitute existing vendors or complement an enterprise’s existing security stack, reducing overhead and complexity.
“SaaS applications, such as Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 for example, have a significant number of controls and configurations,” said Davit Asatryan, Director of Product at Spin.AI. “One of the biggest challenges administrators face is configuring these applications for the best security posture. This new SpinOne update delivers the visibility needed to better understand configuration issues, set better policies, and respond faster, while aligning with existing regulations such as NIST, ISO, and SOC 2.”
SpinOne protects the SaaS applications enterprises use on a daily basis, reducing the risk of downtime due to business disruptions, ensuring business continuity, and improving compliance.
